Green Your Computer Use: Recycling

Don't send it to the landfill Computers help us work faster, find information, and connect with people. They also use energy and create waste. This week, we'll discuss ways to do the most good and minimize harm while using computers.

Tip #3: Recycle Old Computers

As technology continues to rapidly evolve, e-waste is a growing concern. If your old monitor or laptop absolutely cannot be donated (more about that tomorrow), it's time to explore your recycling options. Consult the EPA's list of recycling programs for electronics or visit the Consumer Electronics Association's Web site, which can help you locate recycling centers by ZIP code. Before buying a new product, find out if the manufacturer has a take-back program. Apple and Dell both recycle old computers with the purchase of a new model.
